Packaging an OpenWRT (or other) kernel for Debian

I'd like to re-aquiant myself with building a kernel package for
debian, figuring out the following:

- What's the difference between a Debian kernel and mainline?

- How does the rt-preempt on debian work?  Can it be re-used for a
  different kernel?

- How to package an OpenWRT kernel on Debian?  How to split it into
  two parts?  One for the device's Flash image / boot loader, and one
  for the Debian install on a USB disk?
